Unfortunately, we have made the decision to postpone all our 2021 races at this stage. When they were originally planned in 2020 we had hoped that the start of 2021 would mark a welcome return for running events. However, current Covid-19 restrictions would prevent the races going ahead, and, whilst lockdown could be lifted before the planned event dates some form of restrictions will no doubt remain in place limiting the ability of many runners to attend. We have considered moving events to reserve dates but do not feel this is in everyone’s best interests at this stage. The last thing we want to do is have to move the date for a second time. Having carefully considered all the options we felt that postponement was most appropriate until there is a greater degree of certainty.
Entry fees for anyone who had already registered have been refunded in full.
We had hoped to be announcing our further events at this stage and were excited about sharing those with you. The Active Run concept was created for two reasons. First, to fill an anticipated gap in the running calendar and second, to offer a highly branded bespoke event experience normally reserved for larger scale marathons and half marathons. Unfortunately, the ongoing restrictions do not allow us to deliver the quality of event that we aim to put on and we do not feel it is fair to compromise on this.
Hopefully, we will be able to stage events later in the year and we hope that you will be able to join us.
In the meantime, thank you for your support and stay safe. If you need to get in touch with us then please note that our offices are currently closed. We will, however, respond to any emails as soon as we are able.
